The State of North Carolina recently passed legislation (called NC PACES) making it possible to take on non-accredited investors for your small business. This allows you to raise funds from your friends, family, and broader community and to offer them a stake in (and a return on) the success that they are helping you to build.
After receiving questions from many local businesses interested in this new financing tool, we launched a pilot Invested Equity Crowdfunding Course in 2018. It was a great success and one of the graduates from that first class, 180 Float Spa, became the first-ever to complete an NC PACES campaign in NC!
The 3rd Cohort of our Invested Course is coming up! The 4-session course will take place on the following dates:
- Session 1 Thursday August 8th 2-5pm
- Session 2 Thursday August 23rd 2-5pm
- Session 3 Thursday September 5th 2-5pm
- Session 4 Thursday September 19th 2-5pm
Add your name to the Cohort 3 Interest Form to be updated of the next Intro to Invested Equity Crowdfunding pre-workshop session. We also have an interest list for potential investors (those of us that may want to participate in a local crowdfunding campaign and attend one of the Invested course pitch events) that you can sign up for here.Get on the Cohort 3 Interested List!
